Speculation linking Burnley with Aston Villa forward Gabby Agbonlahor is wide of the mark.

There have been suggestions that the Clarets could move for Villa's longest-serving player, who is currently out-of-favour with Remi Garde, although a back problem has been named as the official reason for his omission.

But I understand there has been no approach from Burnley whatsoever for the 29-year-old, who has three full England caps.

The Brummie lad has also been linked with Wolves, but he is believed to prefer not to drop into the Championship.
